REACTIVE POWER

The power delivered that does no useful work, but must be present so that the work can be done. Example: the Apparent Power necessary to turn a motor at a specific speed and torque consists of the Real Power (contributes to speed and torque) and the Reactive power (energizes the motor coil, but does not contribute to speed or torque. The Reactive power is measured in volt amps-reactive, or kilo-volt amps-reactive; abbreviated “VAR” or “kVAR”. (see: Apparent Power; Real Power; Volt Amp Reactive)
